Any ideas when they'll be back in stock?

Actually, I think I am getting a surround sound signal. I did a surround sound test with the coax-out to an A40 mixamp (converts DD 5.1->Dolby Headphone), and I seem to be getting the forward left and right, and back left and right in the right places. A quick test without the mixamp made the FL and BL sound equally on my left, and the FR and BR sounded equal on the right.
I watched the Bourne Ultimatum with 5.1 AC3, and I'm pretty sure I was hearing surround too.
I don't see why it wouldn't transport a multi-channel signal. If used as S/PDIF out, it wouldn't [shouldn't] touch the stream, leaving the multi-channel data intact, if my understanding is correct.
I'm pretty sure the udac doesn't support surround sound. When I hooked it up to my reciever using the coaxial cable i went into audio midi setup. (From my understanding this is how you setup surround sound on a mac). I selected the udac as my audio device and when I tried to configure the udac stereo was my only option. This picture might give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.
